Description

This short one-day Improving Supply Chain Competitiveness course will enable you to review and explore the efficiency and effectiveness of your supply chain and Procurement function. We will show you a variety of techniques and methodologies which allow you to identify and achieve improvements in business performance in your supply chain.

 This course is for anyone who has a role in developing and implementing supply chain improvements. You will create your own plans for enhancing the effectiveness of your supply chain and, through doing this, serve your customers better by adding value and the delivering or cost reductions to your organisation.

Cost includes all course materials, unlimited refreshments and a buffet lunch.

 Topics to be covered:

  • Improving procurement organisation efficiency: improving the added value of the procurement function by reducing the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of products/services procured, while optimising functional costs. 

  • Develop and implement procurement savings plans: including short-term (competitive procurement and negotiation), as well as medium-term levers (category-based procurement strategies). 

  • Identifying saving options: identifying categories with specific levers and find the potential to generate significant savings. 

  • Design/Re-design-to-cost: Identifying the substantial benefits that can be achieved in collaboration with the different functions involved (marketing, production, Research and Development (R&D)). 

  • Collaborating with strategic suppliers: to sustain growth and/or create value or secure supply. 

  • Supplier development: to improve suppliers’ performance and skills to fulfil their own needs. 

  • Developing supplier performance management systems: to identify the areas for progress, improve the service obtained and sustainably re-emphasise the requirement for collaboration.
